One of the most difficult, yet important, questions regarding projects is "What advantages will this project create for the investors and key stakeholders?" Projects and programs should be treated as investments. This means that the focus of projects shifts from delivering within the triple constraints (time–cost–quality) towards some of the more fundamental questions: What is the purpose of this investment? What are the specific advantages expected? Are these benefits worth the investment?

“Earned Value” (EV) has been around since the 1960’s as an effective Method for monitoring and managing project performance during implementation, and because of its ability to assess Time, Cost and Quality in an integrated manner, EV is undoubtedly significantly superior to antecedent approaches. EVM adoption and utilization was slow at first but following endorsement by the international Project Management Institute (PMI) as a “Best Practice” and inclusion in PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge “PMBOK,” demands to use EVM have escalated dramatically in recent years. Nevertheless many project managers and their stakeholders are still not using the Earned Value Method (EVM), and are reluctant to adopt it; or if using it are failing to obtain full benefit from EV analysis. Ken will explain the use of EVM in the Project performance Index (PPI) and in use of the TriColor Traffic Light System

To mirror the Agile Manifesto, it's not that scope, schedule, and cost are unimportant, but that value and quality are more important. This talk explores the necessity for and the rationale behind moving to this new set of agile performance measures
